1  Let $\mathcal E\in\mathrm{T}(\mathcal X,\mathcal Y)$ be a quantum channel (i.e. a completely positive, trace-preserving linear map sending states in $\mathrm{Lin}(\mathcal X,\mathcal X)$ into states in $\mathrm{Lin}(\mathcal Y,\mathcal Y)$). It is well known that any such map can be written in t...
